The classic mantle-and-hearth fireplace is now giving way to more contemporary gas fireplace and insert designs that emphasize clean, simple lines. Gas has become the top option.
Fireplaces are also getting bigger, influenced by widescreen television sets. And, there are more options for finishes, from classic brick and rock to ultra-sleek tile, glass, and metal.
People are enjoying more modern design that is clean, modern, and sleek and homeowners are more in favor of clean-face units and wider dimensions.
See-through or doubled-sided gas fireplaces are a fast-growing trend, adding a focal point in home décor. See-through fireplace styles offer light and heat on both sides of a wall, with the fireplace serving as a focal point for two rooms, or as a divider for larger areas.
Today’s gas fireplaces are a whole lot more versatile, with a range of styles, surrounds and finishes complimenting any décor. Looks can easily be changed and updated as well by simply adding decorative rocks or glass crystals or installing a new log set. It’s an easy and affordable way to revamp or customize an indoor fireplace.
Gas Fireplaces add value to a home, and can significantly reduce heating costs. While some fireplaces heat only one room, others have fans with can circulate warm air to other parts of the home. They are more efficient because you can just heat the room you are in with a thermostat or transfer the heat to other rooms.
Natural gas fireplaces are a number one choice because they are convenient, easily maintained and cost-efficient. Anyone can walk in the room and flip a switch, and turn on the fire. You can heat the room, and keep the furnace turned down.
Gas Fireplaces offer a range of benefits to a home, creating ambiance, warmth and comfort while adding value and cutting heating costs. Fireplaces not only serve as a focal point of a room, but as a gathering point as well.
